The Experience

We want to upgrade our amazing breakfast with the dishwashing service. We need someone that doesn't have a problem with waking up early (breakfast starts at 7 am) and take a cart where people leave their things to the kitchen and empty it back so the process starts again. You'd have to wash dishes for around 3 and a half hours, having the rest of the day off! You have many benefits that will make this volunteer position the best you've had

Learning & Fun




This was my first worldpackers experience and I loved every minute of it. The communication with the hostel was very smooth before and during my stay. The staff is so kind and caring. The hostel itself is cosy, clean, in a good location and the view from the rooftop terrace is just breathtaking. I helped with breakfast 2-3 times a week, took some pictures and videos for their social media, designed event posters and worked on the website a bit. So the duties are flexible, you can contribute to the life of the hostel in the best ways you are capable of. I’ll keep warm memories of Santiago.

Tive uma ótima experiência no hostel Plaza de Armas. A localização é ótima, e a vista também. Além disso, a equipe é bastante prestativa e educada. Quero agradecer especialmente ao Angel, com quem mantive contato pelo Worldpackers, e que foi bastante atencioso e compreensivo. Este é um ótimo hostel para se fazer voluntariado.

O hostel é bem localizado e muito agradável de estar. O café da manhã e a área de jogos estimulam os hóspedes a se enturmar. Agradeço ao Angel por ter sido muito agradável e compreensível, explicou as funções muito bem e estava preocupado com o meu bem estar.
